Damage Reduction applies to all attack modifying effects, e.g Omni Arms, Zweihander, Kahlii’s Passive, Zanis ultimate.
Sonic Boots is a situational upgrade that addresses enemies who deal physical damage. This includes marksmen, assassins, warriors and several tanks. Its bonus movement speed, armor, and normal attack damage reduction are good coverage against these heroes, especially for squishy heroes like mages and marksmen.

Warriors and tanks can also get Sonic Boots to soak physical damage whenever they clash with the enemy front liners. Most front liners’ abilities scale with physical damage.

As additional note, the damage reduction provided by Sonic Boots affects any attack-enhancing abilities or effects. This includes items like Omni Arms and Zweihander, or abilities like Kahlii’s passive or Zanis’ ultimate.

Recommended Heroes and/or Situation:

Get these boots if the opposing team is comprised mostly of physical attack damage dealing heroes. Its armor and damage reduction can help you take some punishment from enemies.
